Love My 50-500mm

Fileboy, B&H Photo
20 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I have used this lens for everything from nature to modeling shoots. It's very sharp and in AF-C mode is great for action shots. One drawback is the weight, the thing is built as solid as a brick. I like to shoot hand held and this makes for a long day holding this lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Difficult to Clean, Heavy, Lens Creep

Great Lens

  • Excerpt: This lens is great for wildlife photography. The ability to get up and close to your subject at the wide range of this lens is great, and being able to really reach out there on the telephoto end is great. It's a lens that you can keep on your camera and cover just about any situation.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Lens Creep

Sigma 50-500mm

13 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I have looked for a long time, to find a lens that will work for most of the pictures that I do with out changing all the time. I have had this lens for couple of weeks. It is so awesome, I shoot baseball and a lot of different activities. I believe. This is one of the most usable lens I have.

Another great lens from Sigma

Black Russian, B&H Photo
6 July 2014
  • Excerpt: So far I used it to shoot parade, wedding, surprise engagement, and football game. Image quality is about 95% of Canon's 100-400 L series lens. Unless you're shooting for National Geographic, it won't be obvious for your clients, but extra zoom on both ends will be.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Huge zoom range, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Lens Creep

Great Lens, the search is over.

Kirk, B&H Photo
9 June 2014
  • Excerpt: This is my third Sigma zoom lens. And this 50-500mm is a keeper! The prior lenses were 135-400mm and 120-400mm. The 50-500mm blows the others out of the water. The focus is much faster and a lot less searching. And the focus is correct with no in camera compensation (Pentax K-3).
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Amazing and flexible Lens

Inaz4sun, B&H Photo
13 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Wasn't sure exactly what this lens would be like when I ordered it. First thing you notice is that its huge and heavy (heavy usually = quality). When you attach the lens hoods this lens looks like a telescope.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, OS, Range, Value
  • Cons: Heavy

Great value for this price!

  • Summary: It is absolutely great value for such a low price. Lens is not good at taking picture with low light, but absolutely amazing at good day light. Totally worth the money.
